CARP On LAN interfcae



  • Hi Buddies,
    did any one already configure Virtual IP on LAN interface , can he  share the configuration with us.

    i set the gateway of the DHCP server of the LAN interface to be the Virtual IP of the LAN  (for example : 192.168.1.1) . but  i cant reach my gateway (Virtual IP ) from the devices outside pfsense.

    if i ping 192.168.1.1. from Pfsense , it works. but the Client cant reach the gateway(192.168.1.1) and consequently they cant reach the Internet.

    any extra setting , should  i consider? do u have any idea?

    My Configuration Steps:
    LAN int on Master PFsense:192.168.1.2 
    LAN int on Backup PFsense:192.168.1.3 
    1- on Virtual IPs Page :Configure Virtual IP for  LAN interface.(192.168.1.1)
    2-set the DHCP of LAN : DNS : 192.168.1.1 , Defaultgateway :192.168.1.1 , Failover peer IP:192.168.1.3
    3- On NAT : Outbound : set to Manual , and the LAN subnet entry (192.168.1.0/24) i set the translation interface to Virtual IP of CARP_WAN.

    any thing else to do ?????
